Thanks to your advice, I examined the access point issue more closely, using Wireless Assistant. It seems that the state is flipping back and forth at about 1-second intervals between UNKNOWN and N/A. When it shows UNKNOWN, a MAC address appears as the access point under Status; when it shows N/A, the access point is shown as - not available -. The MAC address is indeed the MAC address of the router, which I verified from a different laptop.

So there almost certainly is an "association issue" -- but how can I resolve it?

Sorry, I don't have any answers for this one.

It seems a large majority of vifi issues are either experienced by those with multiple interfaces, or multiple wifi mangement software.

Perhaps you'll find more help/data over in the ubuntu forms.

Just incase anyone finds this post in the future, all of my issues were solved by using (k)ndiswrapper instead of the OSS drivers for the wireless card.
